Designed2Delight Blog Hop

Hi! Maybe you have hopped over here from Pat's blog, or maybe you have popped in from elsewhere, but either way, Welcome!

Today is Designed2Delight's March Reveal day with all the new images for the month being revealed. In honor of that we are having a blog hop to show off some of the new digital images. Some blogs will be giving away a prize...could mine be one of them?!  I'll be giving away one of the new images, so leave me a message and you will be in the drawing for it!

Also, for 3 days all the new images are 20% off!  Great deal!

My first card is the image called 'Drenched'.  I've felt this way before!  I used to live in Houston, and  boy can it pour there!!

Designed2Delight offers images in three file styles, one of which is the white-filled.  This opens up lots of creative possibilities that the transparent files do not offer.

I used one of the transparent sentiments of the set and copied it multiple times across the background.  I used the white-filled image on top, and since I used the white-filled image,  the writing doesn't show through.  Love that!!  

For my second reveal card, I used 'Ladybugs'. I first picked out an adorable paper by My Mind's Eye 'Lime Twist' that seemed to have a similar look to the Ladybug image.

The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I added pearls to the ladybug heads.  Also added a butterfly from the coordinating paper.

Well, that's it for my part of the month's reveal. Please hop on over to Kathy C's blog for some darling projects!


Thanks for hopping by!

sentiment as a background.

Great cards. I love the background with the sentiment printed across. What a great idea. Ever since my daughter did a report on ladybugs in grade school I have loved lady bugs. Love the pearl heads and the background paper is perfect!

Adorable cards, Peggy! I really like how you used the sentiment as your background paper :)

Your coloring is beautiful. I love the simplicity of your cards. Sometimes less is more!

Thanks for the how-to for the first card - getting a solid image over a transparent background. I've never done that before and want to try it yet today.

Zora said...

Both cards make me smile, they are wonderful and so summery :O)

Cool cards, Peggy. I'm new to D2D and also don't quite understand all the ways to use digi stamps. Hope I catch on soon! LOL

I love "Drenched". The sentiment background adds a great touch!

Your wishing you sunshine sentiment with your umbrella image gave me such a laugh. What a great combination. Great choice for a patterned paper too!

Both of these are awesome! Love how you used the sentiment to create the background! I really love the ladybug card, ladybugs are my favorite and you really paired that dp with the image beautifully!
